How the charity started
Lee has always enjoyed being involved with meaningful causes from a young age, she was a Girl Guide and frequented Round Table with her parents. Having been a teacher for over 16 years, it really opened her eyes as to how many of her learners came to school without having a meal and stationery. She introduced a sandwich station in her classroom which was available to any hungry student. She started selling basic stationery and the profits went to buying stationery for those children who could not afford it. She motivated her class to always share the love and help when the schools had specific charity drives.
"I was fortunate enough to meet with a member from the Partners for Possibility program and he introduced me to Emona Primary school Principal, Mr. Mkhize. I was inspired to gift each Grade 1 child at the school a pencil bag to start the year off on positive vibe. That evening as I imagined the grade 1 child going home to show off their pencil bag to their siblings who are in the same school, I felt saddened that not everyone would receive one. So the seed was planted to start my own charity to help fund these initiatives. I started my own company towards the end of 2020, and we were in the process of still getting it off the ground and my seamstress had some time to spare, so I decided to make a pencil bag for each child in Emona Primary School."
We managed not only to make a pencil bag for each learner but every employee in the school. This is when I realised that I wanted to formalise the charity and began the registration process. Children and education are extremely close to my heart but now I am moving my energy from the classroom to the community and hoping to share the love far and wide!

Share the Love Wall
We want all teenagers, teachers, schools , parents and volunteers to be our partners in various activities within the communities. Activities that are appealing to each individual. These volunteers will create and enjoy close relationships with the various NPO organisations, where we create “OUT OF THE BOX” activities that are exciting, fun and most of all that impact the communities in a great way.
Volunteers are encouraged to select the communities that are meaningful to them. “Making a difference “ is our driving force in our volunteering. Let’s all give back in a way that gives us personal satisfaction that a difference has been made in someone or something’s life. In this process we will meet many diverse people and be exposed to new skills and ideas.
We will enable you making a difference in wonderful ways that may never have been considered.
